Salary Arbitration

The Detroit Free Press reports that the Tigers have avoided arbitration with reliever Joel Zumaya by agreeing with him on a one year deal worth $915,000.

Zumaya owns a very live fastball, but has been frequently dogged by injuries. His fantastic rookie season is the only one he completed in full health, working 83.3 innings and yielding a 1.94 ERA. Since then he's only thrown 88 innings with good, but not as remarkable results. Detroit will continue to use Zumaya out of the pen, hoping he stays healthy and returns to his rookie year form.

His signing reduces the number of arbitration eligible players to 140. The arbitration filing deadline is Friday, January 15th, 2010. Please visit the salary arbitration page for more information
